Suffocated Dreams

I feel suffocated. Trapped. They say the birds are chirping. No, it is the cardinal singing a death song. I cannot see. Everything’s black, so black. Oh no, not black, it is dark. But what’s the difference between dark and black, you ask. The blind one doesn’t see black, but knows and feels what darkness […]

Permanence

As the wind blows through the glass windows and the curtains silently whisper The clock in my heart chimes three leaving the streets of my soul naked I try to catch a fleeting memory while it slips away into an abyss of thoughts It seeped into my core like the rain on the ground just […]

Paradox

Today is the day of paradoxes. Love and Hate will walk hand in hand. Pleasure and Pain will become the best of friends.Life and Death will unite. But then. But then, isn’t it just any other day? I ask myself this question when a thousand roses bloom from my body. The fragile petals stroke my […]

Into The Unknown

It swirls in the whites of my eyes, threatening to shroud me from myself, and drown me in despair. Misery now defines me and my life. Black ink spills from my eyes. In desperation, I write and rewrite my destiny. The black slate remains black. Crimson coloured curtains made of rose petals touch my body. […]

Black Rose

Deep, deep, deep inside,A place in the heart, unexplored,Lay a beautiful black rose.Touched by love and hate alike,A charming showpiece, quite ignored,Out of reach, but still so close.Some emotions that want to hide,Hide, but they just don’t go,Trapped by a beautiful rose.Lust, desire, passion–takes time,Hatred, anger and scarred ego–To gather it all, in the rose’s […]

A Phoenix Will Rise Soon

In a world where,black spills from the tortured eyesand people drink a cup of lies. In a world where,darkness forms the core essenceand dementors haunt my demented presence. I writhe and turn in this self made cage,Sculpted out of misery and rage.Silence hovers amidst those sleepless nights,Far more terrorizing than endless cries. But now I […]

Mimicry

Interesting. Very interesting. Your hands mimic mine; your lips mimic mine. Curving in that familiar way to form a smile. You flip your hair the same way I do….used to. Your eyes hold the same twinkle mine do….used to. You are even wearing my favourite earrings! Those colourful ones! You are so close to me, […]

Ocean’s A Mystery

Those roaring waves call me, Those blue sapphires allure me. But, the warm sand keeps me in, My soul’s trapped in a human’s sin. Expressions are never crystal clear, Every smile holds dried tears. There’s pain hidden in each joy, A hint of regret, when we rejoice. The ocean unravels unspoken mysteries, Summoning all the […]

Faceless

My sorrows are faceless. Even in a deep slumber, they poke me.Endless. The sky bleeds orange red. Promise of a new day. But, bleeding. Blood.…..death? Oh no. I just heard a crow. Will my pain amplify now? Or just the opposite.Who knows. Yes, my sorrows are faceless.They possess a multitude of masks, though. Oh dear. […]
